Thailand Visa Dilemma

Posted by swebb92101 on 3/3/2012 at 22:40

Vietnam/Laos: Sop Hun/Tay crossing Trang

Posted by Ally_the_Cat on 26/3/2012 at 05:00

Hello all, I am a lone female traveler and am looking to cross into Laos from Vietnam in about a week and a half at the Sop Hun/Tay Trang crossing.
